So, do you know the difference between UUIDs and GUIDs?

It's awful: it's how the bytes are mapped to the textual representation. Microsoft GUIDs format the initial 32bit+16bit+16bit components as native endian values (and hence usually LE), and the final 64bit component as big endian. UUIDs OTOH format all components as BE, which hence means it's identical to the whole 128bit entity formatted in BE with some dashes thrown in.

Some pretty bad engineering from Microsoft there...

Zu unpräzise, zu allgemein, nicht ausreichend geregelt: Wieder einmal hat das Bundesverfassungsgericht der Politik handwerkliche Mängel bei einem Sicherheitsgesetz bescheinigt. Regierung und Abgeordnete sollten daraus endlich die richtigen Lehren ziehen, kommentiert Falk Steiner.

Happy birthday Andy Warhol! The American painter, film-maker and author would have been 86 today. Here's 'Brillo', 1988 from the collection of Muzeum umění Olomouc: http://goo.gl/is4twW " Among his works are found repeated series of pictures of consumer goods (Campbell soup cans, Coca Cola bottles) as well as of politicians and Pop Culture stars (Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley). To this category also belongs his carton box of the Brillo detergent, called by the art critic Artur Danto an example of the termination of western art... " #popart

Eine EU-Verordnung erregt die Gemüter: Der Zugang zu Saatgut soll eingeschränkt werden. Profitieren würden davon aber vor allem die großen Agrarkonzerne.

This creature is called Glaucus atlanticus. It is an extremely dangerous, camouflaged sea slug. It preys on venomous animals like the Portuguese Man-Of-War. The slug consumes the entire organism and stores only the most venomous nematocysts for its own use. The venom is then concentrated, which produces a more powerful venom than that of the Man-Of-War jellyfish it feeds on. Glaucus atlanticus is also a hermaphrodite, meaning they have both male and female reproductive organs... A truly unbelievable animal. https://www.googlesciencefair.com/
